I am a 38 year old working mother. I am married to a wonderful man and we have two terrific kids: an 8 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. I work as the Assistant Administrator at our local economic development office. In my free time I enjoy scrapbooking; I am also an avid reader, internet/computer geek, movie watcher, amateur photographer and news/ political addict!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking the cajun food I grew up on! There is nothing better than AUTHENTIC cajun cooking! I also like experimenting with different recipes especially ones that are quick and easy to make during the week. On the weekends I prefer trying recipes that are a bit more challenging. I like cooking all different types of ethnic food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making the delicious cajun foods that are staples down here. Gumbo, sauce piquant, crawfish ettoufee, boiled crawfish, jambalaya, crab stew etc. These are not healthy dishes but they are SO good!
My cooking triumphs
I finally found a crawfish ettoufee recipe that wins raves from my family! I am also a great dessert maker.
My cooking tragedies
I managed to completely screw up a tuna casserole! After the casserole was halfway thru baking I realized I had forgotten to put in....THE TUNA! My family has never let me live that one down.
